terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month

O February, I am done with you. DONE. You kicked me from Monday to Sunday and I’m finished. No longer shall you torment me in this year of ten. I’ve moved on. My birth month welcomes me with open arms, and I choose to move forward right here and right now. One gift per day until my date of birth. I have no use for what is behind me, no use for your last two days. Wretched 2nd month. You have been a misery.
Good Riddance

this boy

gingerbread house and gingerbread train
the first boy refused “arts and crafts” on principle, but this boy leaves his carefully designed creations on full display. i’m not sure which i love more: the pictures themselves or the titles he gives them. i was happy to see that i qualified for this gingerbread train and gingerbread house, being “40ish or older.”

on my heart

Romania, outside Agrisu-Mare
as i write this it is 11:50 in the morning in Romania. i miss the villages. i miss the people. sometimes i miss the simplicity. i think i might even miss the rain. i love how everything seemed so alive and yet so still at the same time. my heart aches just a little bit and i am nostalgic.

24 hours of winter

In my little North Texas town we saw 24 straight hours of falling snow, amounting only to 8″ but something so rare that it’s now in the record books. I spent a fair amount of time walking around outside with my camera, documenting an experience that may not come again any time soon. For this cold-weather-loving girl, the past 2 days have been nothing short of a slice of heaven. And for that, God, I’m so grateful.
